I just thought about this after reading the saving sex for marriage thread. How is marriage actually defined in religion?
I don't personally think the religious view of marriage correlates to marriage today which is basically a legal contract. There must be more to it -what if we didn't have these legal contract marriages?
I know you take vows in marriage - but what if you just went off with your boyfriend/girlfriend and took your own oaths and promised each other without a priest or imam? Would this be recognised as a marriage in religion?
Isn't marriage more of a spiritual thing? Am I over-thinking this?

Modern idea of marriage revolves around love and commitment beyond just a few years or a fling. It's very romanticised.
That's separate from what those who are religious may think, that it's for procreation etc.
In the olden days it was about money and security.
